Wales Rally GB
The IRDC's youngest member, 18-year-old Tom Cave will tackle the last rally of his 2010 campaign next weekend, when he competes on the Wales Rally GB at the wheel of his works-specification Proton Satria Neo S2000 as he tackles the WRC event for the third time.
Tom and co-driver Craig Parry are currently seeded as the 49th car on the road, meaning that by the time they tackle the stages, particularly on the first day, they could well be in very rough conditions, after the passing of 48 cars ahead of them.
"The stages on Saturday, like Crychan and Halfway, are really nice - flowing and good to push on so hopefully, if things are going well, we'll push a bit harder and see what we can do.
"The Davies Motorsport team has been working really hard since Scotland to get the car sorted and I really want a clean run and a solid finish. It's been a bit of a roller coaster this year but I think that Wales Rally GB should give us a good chance to show what we can do."
The event begins with a Super special stage in the area around the rally base at Cardiff Bay on the evening of Thursday 11 November, before three days of action in the Welsh countryside. Friday takes the crews to mid-Wales, north of the remote service at Built Wells for two loops of three stages. Saturday sees nine stages, two loops of four and another run of the Super special in Cardiff Bay while Sunday comprises two loops of two stages, run close to Cardiff. The first crews are expected to cross the finish ramp at 15.30.
